Almost everybody in the world likes animals. Some people keep animals at home as pets, other people go to see them and pet them at the zoo, and some people even go to school and work with animals. Turtles can make good pets, lions you can see at the zoo, but only dogs also sometimes work with, take care of, and help the humans they live with. There are a lot of different kinds of dogs, big ones small ones, dogs with long, soft hair, dogs with short, rough hair. Some dogs were even (bred and) trained to help people do their jobs.
In fact, the people who drive those big red fire trucks you probably love (I'll leave it to you to decide whether to call them firemen or firepeople or firemen and firewomen) have a dog called a Dalmatian, which has short white hair with black spots, riding in the truck with them (to help them save people from burning buildings). All sorts of dogs sometimes do very brave things and help their human friends be safe and avoid ouchies. Keep reading to learn all about them.
(Author's Note: It's a dangerous and scary world these days, so kids and adults alike could use some good news. In this spirit, this collection of warm fuzzy stories about warm fuzzy heroes was written in a style reminiscent of early learning books or primers and is therefore mostly appropriate and "edutaining" for all readers. Feel free to read this to your kids, nephews, godchildren, and prepare them to learn more than they will ever need or want to know about the different breeds of domesticated canine, the various jobs we employ them to do, and acts of heroism they have perpetrated.)

1 Angel The Golden Retriever Lives Up To Her Name(s)
In a heart-wrenching example of life imitating art, specifically canine heroics that rival those relayed in the elementary school staple Where The Red Fern Grows, Golden Retriever, Angel, sprang into action when his 11-year old (in 2010) master, Canadian citizen Austin Forman, was suddenly attacked by a bobcat. Canada is a cold but friendly (and the northernmost) country in North America. A bobcat is a wildcat that, like wolves, cannot be kept safely as pets. Austin and his family were living in the north of the northernmost country in North America the day that a bobcat lunged at him. Angel intercepted the flying cat, and both boy and dog survived, though Angel sustained a serious claw swipe to the face.
